Undergraduate Special Opportunities in Artistry and Research (USOAR) is now accepting proposals from current undergraduates who are interested in performing an independent artistry or research project in 2013.

Share your idea for a research or artistry project with a faculty member.

Once the faculty member has approved your idea, complete a proposal and submit it to ugresearch@niu.edu. Please be sure to include your faculty mentor’s statement of support and a copy of unofficial transcripts with your application. Proposals should be submitted to ugresearch@niu.edu by Friday, Feb. 1.

Students with the most outstanding proposals have the chance to receive up to $2,500 toward the execution of their proposed work.

This is a great opportunity for undergraduates to engage more fully in the world of academia while also placing them steps ahead of their peers in the practice of research and artistry.

Informational workshops will be held on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 16, from 10 a.m. to noon (Holmes Student Center, Room 305)
  • Thursday, Jan. 17, from 3 to 5 p.m. (Holmes Student Center, Room 305)

Proposals will be accepted until Friday, Feb. 1.
